The Jungle Book is a live-action/CGI fantasy film that retells the story of Mowgli, an orphaned human boy who, guided by his animal guardians, sets out on a journey of self-discovery while evading the threatening Shere Khan. The film is a spectacle of amazing visual effects with the star of the film Neel Sethi playing the main character of Mowgli in the movie. He is the only human being on screen and as his first ever role, this kid actor is truly magnificent. Based on the children’s book by Rudyard Kipling, the film will be showcased on indin television for the first time on Sunday 17th November at 1pm and 9pm on Star Movies, Star Movies HD and Star Movies Select HD. A masterpiece with breathtaking surroundings, the Director Jon Favreau has casted an amazing lineup of celebrities to lent their voices to the film. Here are a few details of the actors who lent their voices to the film.
A young boy lost in the jungle, survives a tiger attack and raised by a pack of wolves. Mowgli grows up with the pack, hunting with his brother wolves.The film showcases Newcomer Neel Sethi playing the role of Mowgli
Lupita Nyong’o voicing Raksha. Raksha is introduced as a wolf acquaintance of Bagheera. Unlike her mate, Raksha does not speak, and her name is not mentioned during the film. Due to her short appearance, little of her personality is known, but she can be assumed to be caring and motherly, due to her adoption of Mowgli.

Sir Ben Kingsley voicing Bagheera who is the black panther was one of Mowgli's best friends in the jungle. Bagheera shared in many of Mowgli's adventures as he grew, but eventually the time comes when the man-cub became a man and had to return to human society. Bagheera freed Mowgli of his debt to the wolf pack by killing another bull, and Mowgli returned to his adopted human mother Messua.
Christopher Walken voicing King Louie. King Louie appears to be evil, but he just wants to be human; he is the classic misunderstood villain. He sings the song "I Wanna Be Like You" after he kidnaps Mowgli, and asks the boy to show him the secret of "red flower" so he can be human.
Idris Elba voicing Shere Khan who is the main antagonist of Disney's 1967 animated feature film The Jungle Book. A powerful, suave Bengal tiger, Shere Khan had nothing but disdain for his victims. His reputation was such that he needed only to show himself to intimidate the inhabitants of the jungle. His only fears are guns and fire.
Scarlett Johansson voicing Kaa who is a sly and seductive character, speaking with a soft, often entrancing tone to either lure his victims into a weary, dreamlike state or manipulate them into bestowing their trust, thus allowing him to devour them unexpectedly. 

With all these amazing star giving their voices to the film, watch it on Sunday only on Star Movies, Star Movies HD and Star Movies Select HD
